Re: Suck or Blow ? Compressor Venting

I haven't read thru all of it but-
first check the existing condenser coils - clean if necessary. Can be felt-like layer of dust hidden inside cowling, etc...
Don't oppose the existing air-flow.
Either static - hot air rises or the existing direction of the condenser fan (if there).
so - hole lower somewhere - and hole above somewhere - will give natural ventilation - hot air rises.
Add fan to bolster that if required. i.e don't blow down against it!!

Evaporative cooling does not work that well in high humidity.

Wow. That's some of the worst advice I've ever seen on this forum.
